    I worked at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, and good health benefits.

    Cons

    Good pay only if you are and benefits only if your working, DHL love to hire on call people and when they say on call....Its really on call. One month you have health benefits, and pay is good.. The next month your struggle to make ends meat, and your on cobra for $600 a month. DHL love keeping Wall Street (Slave Drivers Of The System) happy. It's not right that a company that Profits BILLIONS and BILLIONS. Can't even...

    Advice to Management

    If any one really cared, keep workers health benefits, going month to month, give your on call worker a minimum weekly pay. That do a drop in the bucket compared to what you are profit.

    I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, my supervisor was the best, hourly wages good, even maintained friendship many years later.

    Cons

    DHL was purchased, changed too fast, then acquired Airborne. DHL lost a lot of respect as soon as they did that. The purchase of Airborne ruined the family atmosphere the employees had.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you could go back. Never had a more wonderful job since. Ask your DHL Legacy employees how to turn back time. They will know.

    I have been working at DHL Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, easy to hit sales metrics, but even so there is no reward or recognition for doing so. Kind of a joke.

    Cons

    4 years ago this company was great and the monetary incentives were thriving. In the last 4 years, management has turned over and the commission plan has since died. Incentive to make money is hanging on by a thread.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like adults and incentivize your sales reps with money. The campaigns you all have been running are childish, nobody cares to pie their manager in the face for bringing in revenue.
